Hotel La Collegiata
Ranked #15 of 29 Hotels in San Gimignano
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 October 2012

One of the best holidays we have had. After the dismal experience at Borgo La Bagnaia anything was bound to be better. La Collegiata not only surpassed out expectations we absolutely loved it! The hotel is set in the beautiful tranquil surroundings of an old Franciscan monastery, food is excellent, service friendly and rooms well apportioned. We would definitely go back.

Room Tip: We had the simplest garden room which was nonetheless lovely, large enough for a couple and baby.

Very disappointed overall with this hotel. Although a perfect location in beautiful grounds, the gardens were overgrown and very scruffy. Having stayed four nights we had adequate time to sample the food. Breakfast was ok, but dinner appalling, mostly meat dishes, frozen food no fresh vegetables, God help you if you were a vegetarian. The menu never changed. One one occasion my meal was so over salted I sent it back only to be replaced (by the time my Husband had finished his meal) with an equally salty offering. Other couples on the same night also had over salted dishes.
The room although dark was comfortable. Wifi did not work. But overall definitely not worth the money.

Once a charming Relais hotel...now it is a overpriced, empty box on a hill.
My bed sagged, the wifi didn't work, the food was very poor with some the food frozen. The gardens are negelected and brown, ...shabby-shabby

I have stayed at this property three times, most recently in July. It is one of our favorite places to spend a nice weekend. Not only is it a beautiful and unique hotel (a converted Franciscan convent built in 1587 - with a tower!) but the staff could not be any friendlier. They are always so kind an accommodating, and they are so great with our dog. The grounds are beautiful, the food is wonderful and it is just a lovely place to spend time.

My husband and I usually travel with our dog, but most recently went with extended family. It was their favorite stop on our trip. No matter the occasion, the service is always consistent. We will return again, hopefully in October before they close for the year. If not, we will be there when the doors open.

Thanks, La Collegiata, for always providing such a wonderful home-away-from-home experience!

Room Tip: The rooms facing the town are lovely. One day, we will spend the money to stay in the tower suite.

We revisited La Collegiata this past week after a very disappointing vacation home rental. A last minute change in plans brought us back to this WONDERFUL oasis. Thank you to the fantastic staff and especially Stefan for saving our vacation. I hope it will not be 15 years until we return again. Grazie Mile

This hotel delivers on every front, limited rooms means that you get excellent service from the friendly staff who find just the right balance between being attentive and non-invasive. The food throughout the day is fresh and beautiful and the views from all the outside tables make it taste even better i'm sure. I'll definately be coming back soon and can't wait already!

I read somewhere that “if money is no problem then this is the place”. Agreed. A converted Franciscan convent, built in 1587, with a ton of history and personality. A 5 star resort with gardens, pool, small spa area, and personal staff nestled in the Tuscan Hills with a beautiful view of San Gimignano. Extremely professional staff top to bottom. Will arrange anything you want or need - tours or most any other request. Expensive but you do get what you would expect for the price. Everybody should be treated like this at least once in their life!

Room Tip: Request a room with a view of the front gardens and the town.
